Emporio Armani Fall 2013 - MFW

"It was, somewhat mystifyingly, called Kajal. Otherwise known as kohl, kajal is a pigment that's been used to color cosmetics for centuries. So that probably explained a palette that ranged from creamy pinks to smoky blues. Compatible with the Armani we know, true. There were also vestiges of that designer in the soft tailoring of a jacket, or the mannish sweep of a coat. But what really shaped this collection was Armani's longtime passion for Japan, here utilized in its more avant-garde extremes. If you've ever wondered what it would be like to see Giorgio Armani cross-pollinated with Rei Kawakubo, look no further than Emporio's two-dimensional bonded velvets. The volumes of knife-pleated pants and shorts, the Edwardian-tinged high waists and petaled hems hinted too at neo-Japonisme." -
